Former NSC head Amidror: South Africa and Turkey not important for Israel

On Monday, American officials marked the opening of the USA embassy in Jerusalem, which had been relocated from Tel Aviv.

Mr Netanyahu retorted in a statement: "Erdogan is among Hamas's biggest supporters and there is no doubt that he well understands terrorism and slaughter".

Palestinian leaders have called Monday's events a massacre and the Israeli tactic of using live fire against the protesters has drawn worldwide concern and condemnation. "I suggest that he not preach morality to us". "Then all I saw was smoke everywhere and people screaming", Wafa al-Udaini, a resident of Gaza who participated in Monday's protests by the fence, told ABC News via text message.

Nikki Haley denied that Monday's deaths had anything to do with the USA decision to open its embassy in Jerusalem.

"We must collectively call on all to refrain from unilateral measures that only steer us away from a peace process and instead work to end the occupation and advance the goal of a just and sustainable peace, culminating ultimately in two states, Israel and Palestine, . living side by side in peace, security and prosperity", said Mladenov.

The death toll makes Monday the bloodiest day in Gaza since the conflict of 2014, he said.

Rights groups have said the use of potentially lethal force against protesters who pose no immediate threat to soldiers' lives is unlawful.

It came a day after the United States transferred its Israel embassy from Tel Aviv to the disputed city of Jerusalem in a move that infuriated the Palestinians and was widely condemned.

Hamilton wins Spanish GP by 20 seconds, Vettel 4th
After five races, we have a much better understanding of the auto , of what we need to do to get the vehicle working. There are a couple of things, as I said. "It feels nice to be on the podium and nice to have a good, clean race".


Israel has blamed Hamas for the deadly violence, saying the terror group encouraged and led the protests, which included attacks on Israeli troops and attempts to breach the border fence.

"It is unthinkable that while people are drinking champagne in Jerusalem, others are dying in Gaza", Noga Malkin, an activist with the left-wing movement Standing Together, said to the crowd.

"Rather, the violence comes from those who reject the existence of the state of Israel in any location", Haley said.

The Palestinians seek Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem as a capital.

Ngcukayitobi called on International Relations and Cooperation Minister Lindiwe Sisulu to cut all ties with Israel and expel the country's ambassador to South Africa, Lior Keinan.

But the Palestinian delegation in Ottawa called the US embassy move "unilateral and illegal" and Israel's military response to the protests an "immoral act" that relied on "excessive force".

One Middle East official told us that the U.S. is not an objective broker of peace - and called on Europe to step up to the mark. We will see this reality.

Earlier on Tuesday, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said Israel had acted with exceptional "restraint" in dealing with the clashes on the Gaza border.
